well hello.. another new person here.. i love CAP and anything cap is usually good so i was like "hey i wonder what this "cap talk" is.. so here i am.

incase anyone is wondering, im a C/SrA (soon to be staff sergeant! (yay ;D )) and uh thats about all..

but it didn't look like this site was too active all the time so im just wondering if im just here at a busy time or if its more of a just small site.. (or if i just cant see the activeness)


Welcome!


I wouldn't call CAPTalk a "small site" in the sense that there are 404,839 posts in 20,172 topics with 7,498 members. But yes ó the day-to-day posting quantity is not as prolific as many sites. In CAPTalk's 12 year history (nearing 13 years), we've only averaged 87.52 posts per day.


That being said, the admins here have always hoped for quality over quantity. I'd much rather see 10 great posts in one day versus 100 or 1000 mediocre posts. The community here has always been intended to be a professional community of practice versus a water cooler of gossip. Not all have adhered to this ideal but it is nonetheless the ideal and goal of this forum. I hope you find and make good use of it. Welcome, again.

I realized that yeah it is pretty active.
-though would be cool to see an open chat room just to talk..-
(unless there's a hidden one  :o )

oh but just wondering, is there any edit buttons for after you post something if there's an error (I couldn't find one)
EDIT: found it

Hello,
I'm a parent to a new CAP cadet who joined a short while ago, and has been really enjoying it so far.

I'm happy to have found this community. I've shared this community with my cadet, and look forward to poking around to get a taste of things within CAP that she can look forward to as she ranks up.

Happy Holidays, all!

Hey all.  I am not new to the forum or CAP, but after a few years of a hiatus I am rejoining CAP as a Senior Member.  I was a SM W/O Grade in 2013/14 with another squadron.

It's been a LONG time since I was active in CAP.  Prior Utah Wing Cadet in the 90's.  I know, most of you weren't even born yet.  I'm back as a SM and excited to jump back in and be a mentor to my cadets.  I hope to be as effective as many of the SM's I had when I was a cadet.  I'm looking forward to learning from you all.

First off welcome back always good to see a former cadet come back to the fold.  Second you'd be surprised there's more seniors on here than you'd think.  Third, Richard good name, shows you're strong and a great leader.   ;D

Also tell Major DeBros I said Hi from Boston.  He used to be in our squadron.

Hello Sir,
Thanks for the welcome.  I see that my post had over 200 views...but you're the only one to say hi...lol.  Anyways, I'm excited to jump in.  I don't know who Maj DeBros is yet, haven't met him.  But I've only been to a couple meetings so far.

Then let me be the second!  Welcome back!  My intro to CAP was from a Delaware Wing pilot with whom I was working at the time.  He said it was a good thing to do....he wasn't wrong!

Angus is correct....there's a **lot** of SM on this board, and i'd suggest probably more SM than cadets.

Anyways...enjoy!

Hello everyone, I am currently a Senior Airman in Civil Air Patrol. I've been apart of this wonderful organization for almost 4 years. (If any of you are wonder why I am such a low rank for being apart of CAP for 4 years, that is a whole other story that is long.)

Hello, everyone (I rather not give out my last name or name so just call me by my nickname Cassie). XD I have currently been in Civil Air Patrol for less than a year and I am Senior Airman. I have enjoyed CAP so far and I am very pleased to see that there is even a discussion place outside of CAP. So whoever made this, this is awesome, thanks.

Hi! I am C/SrA Cassie (I am just not going to give out my last name or first name because in general, I don't do that). Did you make it to Staff Sargeant yet? XD

Probably a busy time?

Welcome, cadet.

You might want to edit your tag slightly to "SER-GA-454" (the correct charter number ordering).

You've got a good unit (the Wing/CC and I enjoyed doing a bit of PT with y'all the week before last when we visited, and we had a good time training with y'all on the mountain this past weekend). I'd never before seen a real entire C-141 bounce from cadets doing PT in it!

Best,
